The word science is derived from the Latin word “scire”, meaning, “to know” because science is a way to know the world around us. But the more detailed it becomes; the harder it is to understand for the people who are from different fields or occupations. That is where science communication comes in. Science communication is extremely important to convey scientific concepts and research happening all around the world. It can be used as a tool to educate general people about developments in science. “Science and everyday life cannot and should not be separated.” – Rosalind Franklin. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I realized that good science communication helps people make right decisions and fight against misinformation that can easily mislead society.
I am Eva Sharma, an aspiring science communicator, pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology (2nd year) from Kota, Rajasthan. My love for reading science articles and watching science videos fueled my interest in science communication. I participated in different activities like making science presentations and posters in school competitions, an online workshop where I learned how to write and edit science news articles and also wrote about Alzheimer’s disease for the science essay competition by NGSF. I felt that I really enjoyed the process of turning complex ideas and information into something interesting and easy to understand.
I want to make engaging science articles about interesting topics in different fields of life sciences to share with all the curious readers. I wish to continuously learn and improve my skills with every science article.
